The AHL Charlotte Checkers will be weekend warriors for the 2016-2017 season as the team is set to host 24 prime weekend home dates at Bojangles’ Coliseum.  

The schedule also contains several recurring theme nights, most notably for the team’s seven Wednesday games, which will feature $1 Bud Lights and a free ticket voucher for all fans in attendance (courtesy of Farm Bureau) if the Checkers win that game.

Single game tickets start at $12 and are available online via and at the Bojangles’ Coliseum box office.
